* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'': Korra's "[[CurbStompBattle battle]]" against [[spoiler:Toph]] consists mostly of Korra throwing wind at [[spoiler:Toph]], who doesn't so much dodge as kind of lean over, even turning her back on Korra to give her a free shot (and it still doesn't work).

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', [[VillainProtagonist Skitter]] of the Undersiders does this when a gang of thugs attack her territory, mauling them with swarms of insects while simultaneously sitting in her lair and sipping tea. In fact, Skitter's power makes her especially good at this-she can process and assign individual orders to each insect in her (massive) range simultaneously, making her quite possibly the most efficient parallel processor alive.
